Systems biology, as the term indicates, is a biology-based interdisciplinary field of study that focuses on the relation and interactions within biological systems (communication of cells at tissue and organ level, metabolism, network of genes and proteins in healthy and pathological conditions). The aim of this call is to propose a functional model at the cellular, tissue or organism level in healthy or pathological situation. The proposed model will be confirmed through experimental approaches using tools from experimental biology to clinical observation.
It is organized by ITMO Cancer of the French National Alliance for Health and Life Sciences (Aviesan) in collaboration with INCa (French National Cancer Institute). Inserm is entrusted with the operational management of this funding call.
The general objective of this call for proposals is to support multidisciplinary upstream research (mathematics, physics, chemistry, computers, biology, etc.), in order to make progress towards modelling of complex processes or integrative biology, in the field of cancer. It must in particular allow the development of multidisciplinary integrated teams that interact with clinicians, anatomopathologists and biologists in the field of cancer.
